Will this study finally get you to add clove, oregano, walnuts and thyme to your coffee?

Extract of oregano, coffee, thyme, clove, and walnuts inhibits NF-kappaB in monocytes and in transgenic reporter mice.

Full free text:

http://cancerpreventionresearch.aacrjournals.org/content/3/5/653.long

First, in vitro:

"A combined extract of clove, oregano, thyme, walnuts, and coffee synergistically inhibited lipopolysaccaride (LPS)-induced NF-??B activation in a monocytic cell line, compared with the sum of effects from the single extracts."

Then, in vivo (mice):

"Based on the area under the curve, the extract decreased whole body LPS-induced NF-??B activity the first 6 hours by 35% compared with control mice."

Is this a good strategy for reducing systemic inflammation?

Or is it just another lame try to get me eating walnuts again?

I like Turkish coffee! Don't really like getting a mouthful of grounds towards the end of the cup though lol.

"All samples were pulverized and extracted and concentrated by use of water/methanol...The final extract was diluted in corn oil..." That would wake you up in the morning :)

True enough. Though I somehow doubt that a research paper on meat seasoning would have made it into Cancer Prevention :P

I think it is a good strategy for a terrible cup of coffee :)

Sounds like an experimental rub for a pork roast. Hmmmm...I've got a pork roast in the freezer and all that stuff in the larder - maybe I'll give this a go this week and let y'all know how it turns out!

Ground cloves (not extract), yes. The rest? Hell no. I like to add a bit of cardamom to my coffee grounds as well. Both clove and cardamom brewed in a cup give it a nice flavor, reminiscent of chai tea.

Maybe we can talk the guys who make the AeroShot to add these things to their inhalable caffeine product so we can give it a test?
